Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that helps to straighten teeth and transform your smile without affecting your oral hygiene routine. Invisalign treatment had quickly revolutionized the orthodontic world. It consists of a series of custom made smooth, comfortable clear plastic aligners that help to align the teeth to its proper position.
Invisalign is discreet and virtually invisible fit over your teeth so that most people won’t even notice you are going through orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners are removable you can eat whatever you want and can follow your daily routine activity such as brushing and flossing that keep your teeth and gums healthy.
At your initial consultation, our dentist evaluates your orthodontic need, whether you are the right candidate for orthodontic treatment. After the examination, 3D images of your teeth will be taken to map out a precise treatment plan, such as the time duration of treatment and the average number of aligners worn out to align the teeth to its proper position.
It is a multi-step process; you get a custom fit aligner at regular intervals of time. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth and for every set of aligners you wear will move little by little gradually and gently to the final position. Our dentist advice you switch a set of aligners about every two weeks and suggest you visit the dental office once every 4 or 6 weeks to ensure the alignment of teeth is progressing in the final position as planned.
The advantage of the Invisalign aligner is that it can be removed. Brush your teeth after every meal so that food particles do not get trapped in the aligners, which could promote tooth decay and gum disease. You aligners, too, before putting back brush them and rinse them with lukewarm water.You can achieve a perfect smile with little interference in your everyday life.
